I think there will definetly be less work in the end required. Combined
with feature #479640, they will be able to do all of it, and allow their
users some level of control at the same time.

For the time investment of doing the configuration file right once, they
will have access to doing it via the DB nearly exclusively from there on.
(Barring a few configuration settings that I am limiting to the config
file for either security reasons, or the fact that they are needed to
connect to the configuration database)

The security that I am implementing over the DB-based configuration will
enable them to control the level of access that is presented to users by
